SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- In order to reduce the sickness and spread of influenza among the children in Greene County, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department will offer a walk-in flu clinic for children at Westside Public Health Center, 660 S. Scenic Ave., on Thursday from 3 - 7 p.m.
This is the final walk-in flu clinic after a series of them over the past month. Children ages 6 months through 18 years of age and pregnant women are encouraged to attend.
Preventing flu illness and spread in the children in our community is also effective in preventing the spread of flu in the rest of the population. The flu can cause serious illness and even death.
It is important to take steps to protect yourself, your loved ones and, in turn, our community, from unnecessary sickness.
For more information, call the flu information line at (417) 874-1228.
